Northern Michigan University and Micro Imaging Technology to Collaborate on Rapid Detection of Staph and MRSA Pathogens

Micro Imaging Technology, Inc. announced that it will collaborate with the Northern Michigan University (NMU) Department of Biology to expand MIT's technology to identify and differentiate Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The goal of the strategic research with NMU is to rapidly and cost-effectively identify these two particular healthcare threats using the MIT 1000 System, a bacterial cell based identification system that can identify pathogenic bacteria in three minutes (average) at significant cost savings per test. At this stage the collaboration involves scientists from MIT and NMU gathering preliminary data and developing collaborative research proposals seeking funding in support of continued research. Dr. Josh S. Sharp, Ph.D., assistant professor at the Northern Michigan University Department of Biology, will direct the NMU portion of the research at his laboratory in Marquette, MI.

Northern Michigan University's Technical and Office Professional Staff (UAW 1950) Ratifies New Contract

Northern Michigan University's Technical and Office Professional Staff (UAW 1950) ratified a new contract on Dec. 13, 2012, by a 95-32 vote. AFSCME 1094, composed of food service, maintenance and police employees, also ratified a wage and benefit reopener to its previously negotiated agreement by a 48-25 margin. Both deals were approved on Dec. 14, 2012 by the NMU Board of Trustees. The TOPS contract includes a $0.25 per hour base increase, which equates to 1.75%, in fiscal years 2013 and 2014. An additional $0.10 per hour equity increase will apply to the lowest-paid employees at each classification level. Members will also receive one-time payments of $300 and $200 over the two years. The TOPS union joins the other campus employee groups in shifting to a new health care plan that includes increases to copays and annual deductibles. The required health care contribution per member will increase each year of the contract, accounting for a 20% share of total health care costs on an annual basis. This contract expires on June 30, 2014, with a possible one-year extension. The AFSCME reopener resulted in a 1.5% base wage increase and a one-time distribution of a $150 university contribution to the pre-tax employee HRA accounts, or a taxable cash payment.
